Mallet beechwood (Lathe training)
Firewood from my friend, so I call it the Hansen mallet.
I’m a beginner in this, but I love it, the smell the woodflakes flying arround me, hmmmmmm, its wonderful.
I purchased a set of HSS irons, and wauuu, this is a difference! Now I cut like a knife in butter.
I tryed my way with the different irons, and think I got hold of the main ideas now.
My best friend Michael allowed me to take some good pieces of firewood from his pile, and this is the first result.
I roughcut on the bandsaw with my sled, and then it was time to rock and rool…
I finished it up with oil, and when it’s completely dry, I’ll give it a spin, sand it fine, and finish up with wax.
In the bacground you see my newest winebox toolcabinet, now for my carving and turning tools.
Hope it could be to some inspiration,
